Good morning!! I’m back with another outfit post! Hurrah! Here’s a funny story: We had a HECK OF A LOT of laundry to do during this past week (and you really don’t want me to get further into it.. *bed bugs from the apartment upstairs* HA), so I decided to get my roommate to take some pictures while we were waiting for everything to finish at the laundromat. Where were these photos taken? Yeah, they’re from directly behind the laundromat. Very classy lol.
Guyyyyss. This is what my Summer has come to. Pictures at a laundromat because I work so much and my days off are here and there. Summer is almost over! We have A MONTH left, and I feel so sad that I haven’t really had any peak moments/highlights to Summer 2017. How about you guys? Have you also found that Summer this year hasn’t been the greatest, fun-wise and weather-wise? If you’re having the best Summer of your life, that’s awesome! Have some fun for me ha-ha! But seriously, I hope this next month is a whole lot better!
I do have Wayhome Music and Art Festival to look forward to! This weekend I’ll be going to Wayhome with Topshop Topman! I am so excited because I’ve never been before, and I’m basically going FOR FREE. This will definitely be a highlight. We’ll be camping the entire weekend and there’ll be so much going on. I’ll be working for a bit of it but I get to do whatever I want for the rest of it! One of my goals while I’m there, besides having the best experience, is to vlog EVERYTHING. Well not everything, everything. I just want to share a good experience with you guys! Does that sound like a good idea? If anything, there will definitely be pictures to share and of course, a blog post.
Hey, it’s me. Yeah, I’m not dead! I didn’t fall off the face of the earth or anything like that. Life happened, but I feel much better and I’m ready to go back to doing things that make me happy. Like writing this blog!! :))
To those of you who are wondering why I haven’t written a blog post since March, it’s mainly because I went through a tough time and had to figure out who I am and what I love about myself again. Do you guys ever fall into ruts and feel like you just have zero motivation to do anything? Or just feel like nothing is worth it? It happens, and that’s life. If bad things never happened, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate all the good things. That’s all I’m going to say but I am more than glad to be back. I hope you guys are glad too!
Today’s post is a good ol’ outfit post. Weird to see my face again, huh? Ha-ha.
There really isn’t much to say about this outfit. I’m wearing all Topshop (obviously). Guys, I’ve honestly tried my best to branch out… but there isn’t a brand that fits me the same! By fit, I mean literally. Topshop also fits my style more but their Petite section gives me LIFE. I want to give a little shout-out to my shoes too though. These cute western-esque slide-on loafer thingies are so cute and have been meshing well with the rest of my wardrobe. Again, they fit me like a glove! Yay!!
Shoes – Nine West | Everything Else – TOPSHOP
Until next time (and there really will be a next time),
Hi everyone! I’m back with a post that is all about one pair of shoes. If that doesn’t tell you how much I love them, I don’t know what else will ha-ha. These are my favourite shoes of Summer 2016. Why? Well, let me tell you.
Let me start off by saying that my feet are tiny. I have baby feet. I am lucky if a woman’s size 5 shoe fits me, and if that doesn’t fit, I usually buy the kid’s version. These gorgeous blue suede mules are from Topshop. If you guys don’t already know, I work there Full Time now. I’ve been an employee for almost two years and not once did I ever find a pair of shoes that fit me perfectly. Of course, I’ve bought shoes from Topshop before but I had to buy insoles to make them fit properly. The smallest shoe size that Topshop carries in Canada is typically a 5.5. When I saw these mules, they came in size 4.5! So obviously, I felt like I had to buy them because never again will this happen. Like I’m telling you, the fact that we had a pair in a size 4.5 is a HUGE rarity. So yeah, I bought them. Duh. And I love them. Double Duh.
I wear them with almost anything. You would assume that because they’re blue, which is not necessarily a neutral colour, they wouldn’t go with much. Like I’ve said, they actually go well with a lot. I love pairing them with denim. I love how they can make a boring outfit more fun. They’re a great little pop of colour and definitely different from the rest of the shoes in my closet. ALSO, they’re comfortable! I can do a full shift with these guys on and it will be bearable.
It’s sad that Summer has come to an end and I probably won’t wear them again for a while. But I hope you guys love these shoes as much as I do! If not, maybe you’ve enjoyed my passion for them? I am very passionate about these shoes and I can’t wait to wear them again next year.
Hi! I’m still here!! I’m working full-time now so I’ve been a little drained lately. So drained that I’ve been too lazy to really keep up with my blog. By now, you guys should know that I’ll never really disappear for good. Blogging is something I love doing, and I don’t think I’ll ever quit it. Don’t worry! ;D
Today’s post is of a trip downtown Toronto to Kensington Market. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s an older neighbourhood that is very fun and diverse. It’s different and filled with creativity! The neighbourhood is full with houses that have been turned into shops/restaurants. There’s a lot of vintage clothing stores, cute coffee shops, fresh produce, and restaurants like a Big Fat Burrito that we went to for dinner that was pretty good! I went with some co-workers, Will (who you’ve seen in my previous post!) and Deniz (https://www.instagram.com/letsdenizme/). If you are ever visiting Toronto, I definitely recommend visiting Kensington Market.
Why hello there! I’m excited to say that I’m back with something different for you guys! I teamed up with a few friends, found a colorful location downtown Toronto, and we took some fun pictures that I’d love to share. This specific location had the cutest crates in a few different colours. They ended up being the perfect backdrop. We also agreed on wearing denim and white. You all know how much I love that combination ;D The photographers behind these lovely photos are Mark Gomez and Jasmine Cabanilla. Also joining us was my fellow Topshop/Topman associate, Will Prowse. I’ll link their Instagram accounts down below! Definitely check them out!
Now take a look at these pictureessss!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! It’s a little different and I like that there’s more people to look at than just me lol. Thank you Mark and Jasmine for taking awesome photos! And for those who follow me, check out all of their Instagrams (follow them!):
“Chokers are the new flower crowns.” I’ve been reading that a lot over the internet. Do I believe it? Not really (ha-ha). For one, I was never really a fan of flower crowns. Secondly, I believe chokers are SO MUCH BETTER. Chokers are like the new.. I can’t come up with anything clever, but I’m telling you they’re 50x better than a flower crown. They’re perfect for when you need a little “oomph!” to your outfit.
This post is simply a glimpse of my choker collection. These pictures were taken by my super awesome roommate, Jay and I love how they turned out! He used soft lighting and did a WAY better job than what I could have done. Oh! – Jay also has a blog! I’ll leave the link below if you wanna check it out!!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I’m really happy with it, and I’m also happy that it changes things up a little in terms of content. I know a lot of my posts have been monthly inspiration. I mean, I love the monthly inspiration posts but I’m definitely starting to feel like I’m cutting myself short. I can do better! Especially now that school is no longer taking up most of my time, I just have to focus on saving time for posts when I’m not at work. Easy enough, I think! ;D
Anyways, hopefully this post made your Monday a bit brighter. Enjoy the rest of your day!
Hi everyone! I have a quick outfit post from the day I was told I got the apartment I wanted! No more student housing!! This is my first apartment and real home in Toronto. It was kind of a great day for me, so here are some pictures that pretty much sum it all up. (Clearly I was overjoyed lol.)
There’s really not much else to say about this day/outfit. Just that I’m glad I won’t have to live in a tiny basement bedroom without a closet anymore. It was literally like Harry Potter’s room under the stairs. I also am glad that I won’t have to look at that jungle of a backyard anymore. Like c’mon. LOOK AT THOSE WEEDS!
(They are kind of pretty though.)
Anyways, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I’ll be celebrating my birthday tomorrow! I am SO EXCITED 🙂 My birthday was on Tuesday, but because I also graduated that day I couldn’t properly celebrate ;D Oh, and I’m also combining my birthday party with a housewarming party!! Woohoo!
